I've been having an issue lately when I try to download Kindle versions of books I am getting "Sorry, epub creation failed." I've tried different browsers, logging into VPN and the same issue happens. I'd rather have the Kindle version over others. Any suggestions?

A few examples:

I was able to download several today in Kindle format. Is it just random them?

not random, there are some books where epub creation fails and kindle format relies on epubs.

Let me rephrase this another way.

ALL the book I want have a Kindle option to download. MOST of the books kick out that error "Sorry, epub creation failed" and I cannot download the book. I am NOT selecting epub, I am selecting Kindle. How is this not random?

as i said. kindle relies on epub. epub creation is broken so, kindle is broken as well
